"This was the decisive conflict in the Arras district, where the tide of battle had ebbed to and fro for days. The German losses yesterday are said to have been approximately 12,000 killed and wounded. "One who knows the district well tells me, however, that the cavalry has been greatly hampered by the surround ings.
